Leta Marie DeMello
With this pen as my weapon,
I brave these words.
Despite all consequence,
the truth shall be heard.
The courageous mind
need no censure
when there’s strength in the hand
to pen down all truth.
Free speech is an illusion,
Censuring is, curtailing expression…
Every word etched
into a piece of paper
should be meticulously chosen,
for words have
immense irreversible impact
When expressions flow passionately…
Let it pass through the screen of reality…
Freedom comes with a responsibility….
That we owe to a literate Society!
The pen is only mightier
as long as “we” approve.
Step out of line and “we” will silence you.
Phyllis Snider Boyer
Expression under threat of condemnation
is either a brave statement
or a safe declaration.
There will always be consequences
but still put your thoughts into words.
Write your story.
Be wary of your written words
for freedom of speech
is an illusion created by censure!
People will be upset…
When your expression is a threat.
Own your story,
Leave them to worry!
No freedom of expression,
But just an illusion.
The pen may be mightier
than the sword
but the guillotine of censorship is swift
Daniel L Khork
When the government finds out the pen
is mightier than the sword
Standing by truth
mostly leads to the cutting edge
of a living life.
Write your heart out
and don’t let anyone censor you
and your story.
The illusion of free speech.
Wrestle what resists your wrist!
